Recovery XS is one of the most forward thinking recovery products on the market. Packed with some of the finest ingredients available, Recovery XS will help promote muscle growth, increase recovery rate and have you back in the gym before the dust settles from your last workout!
Recovery XS uses a proven ratio of post-workout carbohydrates and protein for superior glycogen synthesis and muscle tissue rebuilding; the two main mechanisms of recovery. The carbohydrate and protein content are provided through Waxy Maize Starch and Impact Whey Isolate®, respectively. Waxy Maize Starch is a rapidly assimilated carbohydrate which acts fast to restore muscle glycogen with minimal stomach upset. Whey Protein Isolate is a rapidly assimilated protein and is also virtually fat and lactose free and is ideal for building lean mass.
In addition, you will find a massive 4.5g of amino acids and 3g of Creapure® per serving. These two ingredients will ensure your muscles are fully loaded with energy in preparation for your next exercise bout.
Recovery XS also contains a working serving of 5.5g of the excellent amino acid Leucine which is vital for creating a lean building environment to promote tissue growth and has been proven to increase protein synthesis. The Vitamin C content helps flush away all the unwanted toxins and by-products of exercise whilst the Electrolytes help replace all those essential salts lost through sweating.
Putting the same amount of effort into your recovery as you do your training will put you way ahead of the competition so use Recovery XS to ensure your body has all the right ingredients for a fast and effective recovery.
Add 400-500ml of water or milk into our shaker (the less liquid the thicker the shake will be). Then add 2 heaped MP large scoops (90g), shake and consume. Use directly after exercise.
1 x level MP Plastic Scoop (large) weighs 40g.

My Protein Recovery XS
- (14 / Feb / 2014)
This was the first product I have purchased from My Protein I do a lot of activities so need to have great recovery. The product works well, mixes well. The only negative comment is the sweeteners in the drink very strong sweetener taste takes a little getting used too but then it's not an issue
- (12 / Feb / 2014)
this is a great product for recovery , I swear I can feel the waxy maize starch being absorbed in my stomach , you definitely feel you've replenished your energy stores after drinking itGoes Well With:glutamine
It's ok but only been using it for a week I don't feel that much soreness as I used but after the taking the product it helps but everyone's different your body might react differently !Goes Well With:Semi- Skimmed milk

Very tasty, I got the Strawberry Cream and have brought this few times before. It doesn't fail to impress.
Go for the chocolate version...
- (30 / Jan / 2014)
I've used the chocolate version of this for a while and found it to be very effective in helping recovery from cycling. Have just started on a pack of the strawberry version and while it works just as well it has a very chemical aftertaste. Great product but go for the chocolate version!!
- (21 / Jan / 2014)
Great post-workout product...reduces recovery time, mixes well, tastes great! I use it with other MP products ..as a competitive fbb I recommend this and other MP products !
- (20 / Jan / 2014)
Happy with the product. Nice tasting. Would have been helpful to get a shaker with the product
- (18 / Jan / 2014)
Chose the Mint Chocolate flavour because it was half the price of the other flavours. Works really well, already seeing great results and would say the mint chocolate takes a few goes to get used to - but is in no way unpalatable. Mixes exceptionally well. Great value for money. Will be buying again soon.Goes Well With:CREATINE MONOHYDRATE
- (13 / Jan / 2014)
This is the second time I've purchased recovery XS for my triathlon training because it tastes great, mixes well and gives outstanding results. For the 18 months prior to September 2013 I used MP impact whey and while this was great for gaining muscle I was always a little overweight. Within weeks of using recovery XS I was leaner than before without any muscle loss. It was part of my half marathon training in which I smashed my course PB by 35 minutes! I would highly recommend this to any endurance athlete. Yes it does cost more but it is definitely worth it. Goes Well With:MP high Pro choc n orange bars
- (07 / Jan / 2014)
Chalky taste but you can get rid of that by adding more water...
By the way scooper you receive with this product only holds 30g of the powder (I always use my scales) so it's 3 headed scoops to get 90g not 2! Also, 400ml of water with 90g of powder on top almost fills my protein shaker to the point where it's impossible to mix so I get my 90g serving in 3 shakes (30g + 250ml water) each shake! Much easier and tastes nicer!
Overall an ok tasting shake that definitely does the job it states! Great recovery from it!
All good except the amount of power you need to use and the whole scoop mix up thing!

Excellent recovery drink, started doing crossfit and this massively helped my muscles recover, letting me workout daily. The effect was noticeable after just one day drinking it after a workout. Tastes good mixed with just water, though does take a lot of shaking including using blender ball. Have also tried using 1 scoop of recovery XS with 1 scoop of a more basic muscle-gain protein, and recovery was noticeably worse.Goes Well With:More muscle-gain based powder, so benefit from muscle gain and recovery
Solid first performance
- (23 / Dec / 2013)
Have just bought Recovery XS in chocolate.
Pros: prompt delivery, mix ability (though it needs more of a shake than others I've had), and the initial signs are that the results look good. I feel strong after I've had one of these post-workout and fit feels like it's doing something.
Cons: the chocolate one is much sweeter than previous shakes I've been on so will take some getting used to, lack of nutritional info on packageGoes Well With:Milk
DOMs, what DOMs?
- (12 / Dec / 2013)
Nice product. Mixes well and tastes really good. Hard to assess just how much it helps recovery and reduces soreness but I can work out on several days on the trot (I alternate push and pull workouts) and find I have no difficulty with getting over any DOMs I may have from the day before last, if that makes sense. Before I started using Recovery XS I found not having a rest day inbetween training days much harder to deal with. Goes Well With:Instant oats.
- (06 / Dec / 2013)
Consistency is what counts, not the 'glory' workouts, Recovery XS lets me train deep and hard, day after day, after week after month. I'll look out for you from the podium !
- (26 / Nov / 2013)
Wow, this is a really nice drink. I'm using Chocolate Mint flavour after cycling. It tastes great. It also mixes really well. I used to use Growing Naturals rice protein before and it was really difficult to mixGoes Well With:Semi skimmed milk

Use this after rugby games and training, works a treat. Goes Well With:Water
Good product but taste issues
- (17 / Nov / 2013)
There's a lot of powder for your money in this very large bag. I use to buy small sachets of High 5 recovery, but this works out a bit better. I normally mix it with semi-skimmed milk, and find that even with an electric whisk there can still be some small lumps of powder left. I've tried reducing the dosage of powder to milk and still have the same problem. This is also noticeable in the taste. While its smooth, creamy and definitely strawberry (my fave) there was still a hint of a powdery taste to it. This makes drinking 500ml hard for me as it starts to make me feel a bit sick.
However, since using it, I've definitely noticed less muscle aches after all my events the following day. I do take it within 30mins or as soon as possible after a race. And it does seem to work. So I think its worth the slight sick feeling in my stomach to not have the pain in my muscles.
Oh and I have found the powders quite thick and will coat things easily.. like clothes and hands if you spill it!
Overall I'd rate this as a product that does what it says, but the powdery taste needs to be improved.Goes Well With:Milk semi-skimmed
Just what the running doctor ordered
- (04 / Nov / 2013)
I have never used any supplement before, I always managed to eat what I needed to train effectively. However after getting severe calf cramps and the physio failing to stretch enough. However after 2 good serving of recovery XS I can feel the effects and 2 weeks on and more training the results are noticeable. Although the taste is a little chalky with a good shake in the My protein blender this does just the job.Goes Well With:Sweetened Soya Milk
- (04 / Nov / 2013)
Comes in good sized bag and looks the part, useful scope for getting the measures right each time.
I first tried this shake with water and found the after taste harsh on the throat. The next time I tried it with whole milk and it was much kinder to the throat and generally speaking the taste was 100x better. Lovely choc-mint flavour which I have been using for 2 weeks now and enjoying. I have been recovering quickly after long hard runs between 8-15miles.
Would recommend this product.
- (01 / Nov / 2013)
I received the Chocolate Mint version in place of the chocolate & the taste is terrible. Incidentally I've noted it defaults to the choc mint one even if you select chocolate. A good product except for the taste.
Fight training recovery
- (28 / Oct / 2013)
I am currently getting ready for my first Muay Thai fight after training hard for the past year. This stuff is Awesome !
I was looking to get a post workout drink that didn't put too much mass on (I need to stay at a set weight for my fight) but still tasted decent.
Recovery XS tastes brilliant. I picked the chocolate smooth and have a generous two scoops with milk. No weight gain noticed but definitely just helps knit back together those bashed around muscles and adds to lean muscle development.
If your training for any combat sport I would definitely recommend trying this stuff. Plus lets face it, pretty decent price for a protein shake that tastes good enough to look forward to.
- (26 / Oct / 2013)
Tried a few other brands before reaching my protein xs recovery shakes, once this lot is up will definitely be ordering more. Mint chocolate flavour tastes incredible with milk. Goes Well With:Milk
- (23 / Oct / 2013)
This was my first time of trying this product as I needed a good recovery shake but I must say I have been totally disappointed with this!
It tastes like chalk and feels like powder. I have bought a few of the Impact Whey Protein from this site which I have been highly impressed with and even recommended to friends but for this product I thought it would be the same so decided to get the 5kg but ended up with this product which has left me very sad!
- (09 / Oct / 2013)
I looked into post exercise nutrition because getting the carb/protein mix inside the 30 mins was proving difficult. I'd probably know its effectiveness if I stopped using it, I'd be reminded very quickly how slowly I used to recover.
It tastes well enough for a powder shake and mixes well in my shaker.
Goes Well With:water
- (29 / Sep / 2013)
I hadn't used any shakes before trying Recovery XS. It has gotten rid of any severe aches the following day after exercise, as I have started Insanity. The only thing I find is that it has a slight powdery residue at the bottom when it is mixed up - I have used a blender to try sort this.
I would always have this with milk (got the strawberry version) as with water it didn't taste quite right to me but mixed with approx 400ml milk it goes down a treat. There is a lack of flavour choice so that could be improved. Overall it is a good choice.Goes Well With:milk
- (25 / Sep / 2013)
Really effective product....taste is 'good', not brilliant....would like to see greater choice of flavours as with other productsGoes Well With:Water
- (21 / Sep / 2013)
I've been using this Recovery XS now for a few weeks and have been really impressed. I run 3 - 4 times a week but have previously always suffered with aches and stiffness on day 2. I've seen a massive improvement since using the shake. I picked the chocolate flavour which tastes really nice, I still find it leaves a few lumps but nothing unpleasant and easy to drink.
- (19 / Sep / 2013)
Straight after intensive sessions the Recovery XS shake helps, it's relatively easily mixed and tastes good compared to other shakes. Although there is a bit of a tangy taste left in your mouth. The next day felt a bit better than I would have normally, so effectively reduced recovery time. But obviously it depends on what exercise you're doing and what intensity you're working at. It does a good job though.Goes Well With:Well mixed with milk, also a banana or chocolate bar.
- (18 / Sep / 2013)
Smooth and creamy which is exactly how it is described. I mix it with water only as even skimmed milk makes it a little sickly. I good gulp after a session seems to hit the spot and fills you up to prevent the usual feast after a good work out. I am cutting right back on carbs and use this with other MY products. I have yet to feel hungry and am going like the clappers at the gym. Should have started this type of diet 25 or more years agoGoes Well With:Water
Good Post Training Supplement
- (18 / Sep / 2013)
I use Recovery XS after I play rugby, I use to suffer from the normal aches and pains after a game but since taking Recovery XS these have lessen quite a bit.
Happy with this product!Goes Well With:Milk!
- (17 / Sep / 2013)
I have never used supplements before so I didn't know what to expect. I have suffered with sore legs after cycling for years.After talking to my son he advised me to try Recovery XS..I did and now no more sore legs. Should have used this years ago.Goes Well With:Milk or Milk and water.
- (16 / Sep / 2013)
Recovery XS chocolate smooth and strawberry flavours are good quality for a very reasonable price. Delivery is always good.
Top run, top ending.
- (16 / Sep / 2013)
Recovery XS is absolutely superb in all honesty. I am recovering from a broken leg suffered around five months ago, and required a product that will give me protein and glucosamine in decent dosages that tastes nice. This product ticks all of the above boxes. My fitness isn't anywhere near to where I was pre-injury but it definitely makes the run a lot easier. It tastes so flipping good. I mix it up with a couple of bananas and ice cubs to give it a creamy texture; highly recommended with both water and fat free milk.Goes Well With:Bananas, Ice Cubes and Fat Free Milk
- (11 / Sep / 2013)
Tastes terrible, too sweet and not like chocolate at all. Doesn't mix well either.
- (03 / Sep / 2013)
Currently training for a marathon and this Recovery XS certainly helps with post-run stiffness enabling me to get going again the next day.
- (02 / Sep / 2013)
I was looking for a post-workout supplement that would enable me to exercise on a daily basis without the usual aches and stiffness and this Recovery XS has definitely helped with that. I wouldn't say that the aches have been completely eliminated (I wouldn't expect them to be) but they have definitely reduced a fair bit. I would recommend this to anyone who does a lot of cardio-orientated workouts and is looking to speed up their recovery time. I drink it once a day straight after I've finished exercise Mixability-wise, I find it slightly powdery but this doesn't bother me at all. Goes Well With:Water.
- (27 / Aug / 2013)
Recovery XS is good. You need a bit of adjusting to it in the beginning, but later you become used to the taste. It works well on my body, but I was maybe expecting a bit more. As a last word, It is not below my expectations. But probably just adequate. I will probably buy more once the current pack is over, provided I have a good discount offer again.Goes Well With:Water
- (21 / Aug / 2013)
I use Recovery XS after a big ride when I've been sweating more than normal or I have been pushing hard. Seems to work really well to aid my recovery. I even like the Choc flavor. Although when mixing with water it's an acquired taste. So I normally mix 1/2 water 1/2 milk and it tastes great then. Top Product.
- (20 / Aug / 2013)
I did a lot of research on what product to use post workout and opted for this Recovery XS. For me Recovery XS works well. I definitely notice the difference on recovery from hard workouts and cardio sessions. It has just what you need, all mixed in one product. It mixes quite well considering and doesn't taste too bad. I go for mint choc flavour.Goes Well With:Water and a good workout.
- (15 / Aug / 2013)
This Recovery XS is very good. The only thing I find is that it has a powdery taste when it is mixed up. I have tried using extra liquid and blending it in a blender but I do still get a slight powdery taste when mixing it up. Otherwise it's very good. I have chocolate smooth flavour and it certainly tastes like chocolate which is the important thing as I am a chocoholic.Goes Well With:After training
- (13 / Aug / 2013)
Seems to do the trick - used after commute to work (17 miles each way on bike)
Happy customer Goes Well With:Milk
- (09 / Aug / 2013)
Having searched for a decently priced recovery shake to replace my preferred shake, I found this Recovery XS and decided to give it a go. Based on price and rate of consumption this mix is certainly worth it. I now use a blender to make my shake, but beforehand I used a shaker. It mixed well in the mixer with very little sediment, if any, left in the bottle. The flavour is very sweet, so perhaps a little less powder, or a dash more milk (which I use, though water can be used as well), might be preferred for those looking for refreshment. But, overall, it tastes good. I have found the effectiveness of this product to be to a high standard. Being a regular gym goer and runner, I required a product that would allow minimal fatigue/tightness/soreness of muscles worked, and I have found this product to do a very good job. I would recommend this product to the regular gym goer, or anyone that trains in any way on a regular basis.

Recovery XS is an excellent product. Recommended! Goes Well With:exercise
Recovery XS Strawberry Cream
- (06 / Aug / 2013)
I mostly drunk Recovery XS Strawberry Cream with water and it didn't taste as good as other shakes I've tried i.e. Impact Diet Whey and Elle True Diet, however, 100-150ml of milk (and a few ice cubes in the summer) makes massive difference, didn't have any issues with mixing it either, it definitely helped me to recover from hip flexor strain while still training, will definitely buy this product again if need be, Goes Well With:dash of milk and ice cubes
- (03 / Aug / 2013)
I started Stronglifts (my first ever weightlifting at 27 years old) three weeks ago and have always been suffering the next day so I started using Recovery XS after the workout only and the next day I felt like I had missed a session!
I didn't believe it at first and thought I must have got the weights wrong but skipped using it for a day just to test and felt awful again the next day. It seems too good to be true but it works.
I bought Chocolate Smooth and it tastes great, it's not really sweet, just a good flavour although the texture is a little bit chalky when mixed with just water. I now mix it with water and semi-skimmed milk 50/50 and it's pretty smooth.
I would like some more flavour options though for the next purchase, I'm not a fan of mint or strawberry!Goes Well With:50/50 Water and Milk, 200-250ml of each.
- (01 / Aug / 2013)
Friend of mine swears by it. Got alot of the other recovery sups included in it, makes the price more worth while if you don't want the hassle and lots of suspicious white powders in your house..Goes Well With:Milk or Water.
Definitely notice the difference on recovery
- (27 / Jul / 2013)
For me this Recovery XS works well. I definitely notice the difference on recovery from hard workouts and cardio sessions.
Choc tastes nice, but it's quite "chalky", obviously down to the added extra powders Leucine, Glutamine etc. Mixes (I use water) really well considering.
Excellent first purchase.
- (26 / Jul / 2013)
As a first time customer I was very impressed with the service, I ordered at 4pm with delivery by 11am the next day! I've purchased the Recovery XS Choco Mint flavour which tastes good and mixes well in my shaker. I've only been using it for two days but it feels great after mountain biking and Insanity workouts.
- (25 / Jul / 2013)
Good recovery drink, ideal if fitting in exercise around shift work and unable to get a meal in straight away.
Not the best mixer leaving lumps and a slight after taste but not enough to put me off, overall very satisfied.
- (15 / Jul / 2013)
Recovery XS mixes well and tastes OK.
